K’s Choice – 25th Anniversary Tour – The Best Of
K’s Choice was founded in 1992 in Antwerp by sister and brother Sarah and Gert Bettens, and is still considered one of the biggest bands from Belgium. Over the years they scored numerous Top 10 Album positions, including ‘Paradise In Me’, ‘Cocoon Crash’, ‘Echo Mountain’ and ‘The Phantom Cowboy’ which went straight to the #1 position in Belgium and were rewarded with multiple gold and platinum awards. Their big break came in 1995, when they released ‘Not An Addict’, a single that was very successful and brought international fame. It can’t be argued that this single was their most popular hit, and even two and a half decades later it still receives great airplay in major markets.
Yes, 25 years! In 2017 the band celebrates it’s 25th anniversary and is still alive and kicking, more than ever. In March they will release “25”, a career spanning album including all their biggest hits and a new recording of ‘Not An Addict’ featuring Skin from Skunk Anansie! Later in the year the band will be performing in Europe to bring a mix of their greatest hits.
Douglas Firs, the G. Van Hellemont-fronted indie band, have announced their 3rd studio album. Hinges of Luck is out October 13 via Excelsior Recordings. The 12-track LP was written on a 6 week trip in Canada & New York, recorded back home with the backing band including Simon Casier (Balthazar, Zimmerman) and Senne Guns (Admiral Freebee, Pomrad) and mixed in Louisville, Kentucky by Kevin Ratterman (Ray Lamontagne, My Morning Jacket).
„This music is about a whole generation – mine – that’s struggling with what they should be doing right now,“ Gertjan says about his forthcoming album. „I have among my friends a psychologist who really wants to be a marine biologist, a company spokesperson who believes he should be a writer, and a lawyer who’d prefer to be a graphic designer. And the worst thing of it all: it’s all possible. But How can you know?“
